PUEBLO — The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment is warning the public Thursday night about a possible community exposure to COVID-19 that happened this past weekend.

PDPHE is notifying anyone who was at the Mike Roumph Celebration of Life on Saturday, June 20, to get tested if they are displaying symptoms. The department said an attendee tested positive for COVID-19.

The CSU-Pueblo community came together Saturday to honor the life of former Thunderwolf assistant wresting coach Mike Roumph in a celebration of life ceremony. Roumph tragically passed away early this month in a rafting accident.

The event was held on the CSU-Pueblo campus at the ThunderZone Pizza and Tap House & the Neta and Eddie DeRose Thunderbowl Stadium.

Those displaying symptoms can be tested at the Pueblo Fairgrounds through July.

Residents can also travel to the Fremont County Department of Public Health and Environment.
